Gone to Cooler Climates (That Weren’t That Cool) November 9, 2008

Let’s see, we went to Michigan and Henry slept better than he has in his entire 88 day life in a motel in Michigan. How do I replicate this behavior in the real world? It didn’t matter if he napped for six hours or stayed up all day, he would go to bed at 7 or 8 and stay down until 2am. That was one of the best parts of the trip. Sure, seeing family and friends was great, but sleeping for five hours was really unparalleled.

We were there to celebrate Henry’s great grandfather’s 80th birthday, Henry’s namesake. The weather was unbelievable and it was so nice to have everyone there. The birthday party had a huge (and when I say huge I mean the whole poplulation of the town) turned out at the corner bar to celebrate.

And what would a traveling post be without a video of Henry on the plane. Ins’t he just the cutest little thing in the world?

He made it through the trip without barfing on me once. What a guy! But then he pooped up to his shoulders twice. Then again when we got home. That was full-blown gross!
